Life steps in again. The wife has been ill. Her Majesty has decided that sleeping through the night is passé. Someone moved Arizona to the surface of Crematoria. All those elements mean I missed a couple of runs. I still ran long Sunday night and intervals last night.

Sunday was 6 miles at 85-90% of max HR. My hear rate was difficult to keep in range tonight so there was a lot of walking. I ran the last 3/4 mile at 100% and felt great!
Juice was primary meal all day. Apple, carrot, baby kale, and spinach with electrolyte enhanced water and a cup of orange juice.
Her Majesty woke up twice in the middle of the night again and I was way hellatired somewhat drained all day. I meditated for over 2 hours and slept for 3. Needless to say, I did not get much else done.

Monday was hard but somewhat productive. I was not able to work in a run but I was able to do a bunch of yard work. I got a nice upper body workout by chopping oleander branches with a machete. Hard to do with the left hand, but I made sure to switch hands to even out the load.
200 meters of swimming was the only real workout I was able to manage today.
I meditated for 2 hours today.
I also spent time posting my Liebster Award nominations.

Tuesday was busy but the wife was under the weather so not a lot was done. I did manage to spend an hour working in the yard. I got a sunburn because I was out in the sun for a longer period without taking a break. Not bad though. It was actually a decent workout.
I was able to get in 100 meters of swimming as well.
Meditation for 40 minutes
Interval running – 8 x 400 meters at 2:05 pace was the goal. I managed to run at sub 2 for each one.

I will be working in some heat running with this regimen. Today, June 5, is tempo as well as a short maintenance run.

Wordless Wednesday – sunburn
